OUR STRENGTH COMES FROM YOU.
Since mid-March, our coaches and staff have been working diligently to keep up with the most current information related to the healthy and safe return to practice and competition for our student-athletes. While our protocols have been implemented well, they have brought with them additional costs. A conservative estimate of our lost revenues since last March is well over $2 million dollars.
Even though we are experiencing additional costs and decreased revenue, our expenditures in support of student-athlete scholarships and other student-centered initiatives have not changed. We continue to support our student-athletes’ and their academic endeavors and other experiences at the same level as in the past.
That’s why we ask (if you are able) to help us make up our shortfall, and restore our operations to the levels we are all accustomed. As the year comes to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Saluki COVID-19 Relief Fund, the Salukis need help.
All gifts directly support student-athletes and our efforts to keep them safe.
Your Donations Support a Variety of Needs Such As:
- Protective equipment for teams
- Close contact tracking chips
- Face masks
- Plexiglas for offices and facilities
- Protective shields
And so much more. Thank you for considering a gift to support our efforts. Your gift will make a difference!
Thanks for your support. Salukis Forever…Forever SIU!
